Donald Faison, Eddie Cibrian to Star on NBC’s Monica Potter Comedy

Actors Josh Hopkins and Rory Scovel also join the network’s Ellen DeGeneres-backed project

Monica Potter‘s untitled NBC comedy has added Eddie Cibrian, Donald Faison, Josh Hopkins and Rory Scovel to its ranks, a spokesperson for the network tells TheWrap.

The four are all set to play Potter’s (“Parenthood”) past or current love interests on the semi-autobiographical project, in which she stars as a woman trying to juggle her busy family life along with three ex-husbands who have fathered her children. The half-hour multi-camera comedy is a joint project between Warner Bros. Television and Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production.

“Third Watch” alum Eddie Cibrian plays Jason, a slick gambler who is also Bridget’s (Potter) first ex-husband. “Scrubs” stalwart Faison plays Kevin, her upbeat second husband and Scovel plays Robert, the character’s third ex. Hopkins, meanwhile, plays a veterinarian named Tom Reynolds who finds himself attracted to Bridget.

Cibrian, husband of country singer LeAnn Rhimes, starred on NBC’s “Sunset Beach” before transitioning to the network’s emergency response drama “Third Watch” in 1999. He starred in the film “The Cave” in 2005 and recently had an arc on TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland.” The Gersh Agency and Media Four represent him.

Faison, best known for playing Dr. Turk opposite Zach Braff on NBC’s “Scrubs,” also stars on TV Land’s “The Exes.” He claims several notable film credits, including “Kick-Ass 2” and “Wish I was Here,” also starring Braff. APA and Intellectual Artists Management represent him.

Scovel stars on the TBS comedy “Ground Floor” and previously had a run on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim comedy “The Eric Andre Show.” CAA and Mosaic represent him.

Best known for starring on ABC and TBS’ “Cougar Town,” Hopkins also appeared on CBS’ “Swingtown.” On the feature film side he previously appeared in “The Perfect Storm,” “G.I. Jane,” and, more recently, Tate Taylor‘s “Get on Up.” The Gersh Agency and Brillstein Entertainment represent him.

Executive producers for the comedy are DeGeneres, Jeff Kleeman, Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer, with Bilsing-Graham and Kreamer also credited as writers.
